President Obama’s baffling support for the Muslim Brotherhood, a tyrannical Islamist organization that’s motto calls for jihad, turns out to be something of a family affair. Malik Obama, the president’s Kenyan half-brother, oversees all of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments. Back in Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood opponents are pretty upset about his activities, which they claim provide major funding for the Brotherhood.
Malik is the executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization (“IDO”). The radically Islamist government in Sudan established the IDO with the specific goal of spreading Wahhabi Islam – which is the extreme form practiced in Saudi Arabia and the Sudan – throughout the entire African continent. The State Department considers Sudan, which bloodily purged all Christians and most black African Muslims from within its borders, a terrorist state.
Malik has attended at least one conference in Sudan’s Khartoum, where he met with Sudan President Omar Al-Bashir. Because of the slaughter al-Basher oversaw in Sudan, he is wanted by the International Criminal Court on seven counts tied to crimes against humanity. According to Walid Shoebat, a former PLO operative who is now an ardent foe of radical Islam, Malik’s activities place him firmly ““in bed with terrorists, working in a terrorist state as an official of an organization created by terrorists.”
Those Egyptians struggling against Muslim Brotherhood tyranny (which they discovered, to their dismay, was even worse than President Mubarak’s tyranny), are dismayed by both Malik’s activities and by the way in which the Obama government is covering for him. Tehani al-Gebali, the vice President of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court gave a speech (which Shoebat translated) explicitly stating the Court’s desire “to inform the American people that their president’s brother Obama is one of the architects of the major investments of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Al-Gebali wasn’t boasting when she said this. She was complaining very vigorously about the United States’ passive attitude towards Muslim Brotherhood crimes. As far as she’s concerned, by being so passive, America is being complicit with terrorism – and al-Gebali will have none of that:

We will carry out the law and the Americans will not stop us. We need to open the files and begin court sessions. The Obama administration cannot stop us; they know that they supported terrorism. We will open the files so these nations are exposed, to show how they collaborated with them [the terrorists]. It is for this reason why the American administration fights us.
This is not the first time Malik has hit the headlines for shady conduct associated with his radical Muslim faith. Earlier this year, WND reported that Malik had taken funds from his 501(c)3 Barack H. Obama Foundation (to which disgraced IRS director Lois Lerner gave retroactive tax-exempt status) and used those funds to support his many wives in Kenya. Shoebat wrote a scathing report about this fraudulent practice. The report’s title and introductory paragraph pretty much say it all:
New IRS Scandal: Islamic Extremism and Sex Slaves: Report Reveals President Obama’s Relatives Run Charities of Deceit.
When Malik Obama and Sarah Obama raised money in the United States as the respective heads of foundations claiming to be charities, not only did the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) illegally grant on of them tax-deductible status retroactively, but these foundations have supported – to varying degrees – illegal operations that acquire funding for personal gain, philandering, polygamy and the promotion of Wahhabism (brand of Islam practiced by Al-Qaeda).
When the so-called Arab Spring took place in Egypt, Obama immediately lent moral support to the Muslim Brotherhood. When the people of Egypt rose up against the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama did everything he could to keep the Muslim Brotherhood in power. Even now that the largely-secular military and the Muslim Brotherhood are engaged in a zero sum battle for power in Egypt, Obama is backing the Muslim Brotherhood, whether he’s negotiating for it to have a role in government, or blocking aid to the interim military government – thereby creating an economic and leadership vacuum that the Wahhabi extremists in Saudi Arabia are happy to fill.
Watching Obama in action, many have questioned why he is so energetically supporting a fascist organization that has as its motto “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Some have suggested that Obama’s anti-Americanism means that he’s against whatever is in America’s best interests. Others have thought that Obama really is a Muslim, so he’ll always side with the religious hard-lines. A handful think that he’s just foolishly naïve.
Maybe all of us are overthinking this. Maybe Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood is simply a family affair.
